This implies and signifies that it has many still-standing historical and traditional buildings that give an glimpse into the style and means of the time. You will be able to visit these little villages as there are many of them in the surrounding areas. To the North of the property, you will find the Special Protection Area of the Tailles plateau – a mount reaching up to 652 meters – which serves as home to many impressive species of fauna and flora. A mere 3km to the south of the property you will find the Nisramont Lake, covering 115 acres in the middle of a forest. Downstream you will come across Le Herou, one of the most winding paths of the Valley. To the west are expansive forests that are shelters for deer, boar, and wild cats. The east is where the Ourthe springs separate on the plateau, acting as a feeding ground for many animals. Read More
